5th Annual MAYS Meeting "Peer-to-Peer Aid", Freie Universität Berlin, 4-5 July 2014 - Call for Papers now open

We are happy to announce that the 5th Annual MAYS Meeting will take place on July 4-5 at the Freie Universität Berlin.

The meeting will be smaller than the previous MAYS events in order to foster an even more productive exchance of thoughts among the participants in the familiar enjoyable MAYS atmosphere.

Apart from paper presentations in two parallel working groups with plenty of room for discussion, there will be two expert-led, practice-oriented workshops of interest to junior scholars in Medical Anthropology.

For more information please download the full Call for Papers HERE.

We cordially invite you to send your abstract to mays.easa@gmail.com by February 23rd.

We're looking forward to getting to know your work and meeting you in Berlin!
